Basculin (Japanese: バスラオ Basslao) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

Appearance

Basculin is a fish-like Pokémon. In its red form, two parts of its body are separated by a bright red-orange stripe and has spiky white fins. Its blue form, however, will replace the red-orange stripe with a blue one, and its fins and eyes have a sleeker design.

Evolution

Basculin does not evolve.

Trivia

  • Basculin appears to be based on a piranha.
  • Its name is probably a combination of Bass and Masculin.
  • Basculin was first shown within footage from the Pokémon Searcher BW tour on August 7, 2010. It was used by Cheren in the demo. It was officially revealed on the October issue of Coro Coro on September 11, 2010.
  • While most Pokémon can have up to 3 abilities legitimately (two primary abilities and a hidden ability), Basculin can legitimately have four, as an NPC in Driftveil City in Pokémon White trades away a Blue-Striped Basculin with the ability Rock Head.
  • Basculin and Zweilous are both Hostile Pokémon.
  • Basculin is one of the few, if only, Pokémon in the game "proven" to be consumed by humans; the PokéDex refers to them as "remarkably tasty".
